Nine years ago Rylann Pierce had the (dis)pleasure of almost dating the computer whiz and billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes. Unfortunately, after a night of flirtations in the guise of sarcastic banters, things didn’t work out – as in, Kyle Rhodes stood her up on the day they were supposed to go on a date. Never one to be a sulking female, Rylann took it in strides and chocked it up to intervening fate. After all, how far could a relationship with a spoiled, womanizing heir go?
Nine years later and she found herself representing the State against the Twitter Terrorist, aka, Kyle Rhodes. It was as if the years gone by meant nothing because she still found him incredibly irresistible. Regardless of their mutual attraction, the fact remains that there’s a great wall between them. This time, Rylann was sure she would be commiting career suicide if she allow the relationship to evolve. Who’d ever heard of an Assistant U.S. Attorney dating a criminal?
Oh lawdy. I’ve never seen an episode of LOST but after reading this book, I kind of have this urge to order it on my non-existent NET FLIX. If my memory serves me right, Sawyer is the long-haired, blond, chiseled adonis on Lost, correct? Excuse me while I wipe off the dribbling drool off my lips. Let me tell you, ladies, if all computer geeks look a smidgeon like Kyle, I’ll be trekking my butt to the nearest Computer Science college. Yowza. Kyle Rhodes has this take-charge, I’m-the-man attitude rolled in with the playfulness of a wicked boy.
Anyway, let’s talk about the book before I completely lose what’s left of my book reviewing creds (if I had any).
What else can I say about Julie James and her books other than, when is the next one out? I’m totally smitten with her characters. The female leads are far from wilting violets; strong, sassy, sarcastic and there’s never a shortage of ill-tempered, hot males.
Her books are a wealth of basic(?) law knowledge and for a few moments, I could pretend that I actually know a thing or two about court proceedings. Heh. The thing about her stories is that, it won’t take long for you to realize that you’re hooked and every single book has this consistent unputdownable quality. The lady writes good romance, good books, and in some instances, good suspense.
As I’m writing this review, I’m having this feeling of deja vu. Because I know some of the things I’ve said have already been mentioned on my previous Julie James’ reviews. But you know what? It’s unavoidable. [shrugs]
Verdict: No need to state the obvious here and I’m tired of sounding like a broken record. Goshdarnnit, people! *yanks you by the lapels of your shirt* READ IT!!!
